Rhett and Chitra wanted a simple and fuss-free wedding with just immediate family and booked the Wedding Lawn at City Botanic Gardens for their ceremony. They asked the team at Elope Brisbane to take care of all the details.

Mel and Deb from Miss Weddings set up bamboo chairs and draped the bamboo arbour with a white cloth.

Chitra walked down into the ceremony on the arm of Rhett’s step-father, Greg, to Christina Perri’s song, A Thousand Years. Rhett’s mum, Joy, had a tear in her eye when she saw the look on Rhett’s face as he watched his bride arrive.

Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry created a sweet ceremony for the couple, and they signed the certificates with Rhett’s sisters as witnesses.

Photographer Romana Saeheng captured all the magical moments of the ceremony, then took the couple around the Botanic Gardens for a photo shoot amongst the floral landscapes. This photo was amongst the snapdragons in the formal flower garden.

The family then headed off in search of some cool drinks and a long and relaxing lunch.
